Creating a Digital Careers Library
The internet offers a massive information resource for young people. It provides an opportunity to improve the quality of information, to harness the linked nature of the web to draw in external resources and to provide a more media-rich experience through the use of pictures, audio and video.
Your students will increasingly require access to more personalised careers information. In our rapidly changing world, it is impossible for an adviser to have a completely up-to-date and fully inclusive knowledge of every career, learning or training opportunity. By creating a high quality digital career library for your school, you can provide your students with information on virtually any opportunity. You can also provide a marketplace where your students can apply for opportunities in learning and work.
